The Card Sharps

A leopard and a cheetah were lying,
Playing cards in a shady glade.
Everyone though the cheetah was cheating.
'Like name, like nature', they said.
But the cheetah was never spotted
(though the leopard most certainly was).

Underhand Tricks

This is a funny poem in which the humour is generated by a pair of puns. A pun can either be a word which has more than one meaning or different words with different meanings that sound the same. The first pun revolves around cheetah, the animal, sounding like cheater, someone who cheats, tricks or deceives people. But did you spot the second pun?
